History:  

PUPOSKY is a village in section 23 of Durand Township on Lake Puposky, an Ojibwe name recorded and translated by Beltrami signifying "the end of the shaking lands," that is, swamps whose surface is shaken and sinks when walked on. It has been also translated as Mud Lake, with Mud River outflowing from it. The village was founded in 1904 when the Minneapolis, Red Lake and Manitoba Railroad came; its post office began in 1905.
